>> the rain we've been talking about needing here's some of it. >> most rain we've had in almost 2 1/2 months. i don't think i would want to be sitting at wrigley field. in recent days these nimbus clouds have led to some beautiful photos from our viewers. jeff captured this one outside and this one was captured. these things have been peppering the skies all over the
place. the problem is rains until tonight have been scattered. lawrence dean campbell, jr. captured this thunderstorm looking east earlier today. the radar has tracked the tops of these clouds at about 45,000 feet tonight. in some cases more than that. at the top of those clouds, temperature 80 degrees below zero. this is the way these confused skies looked. one minute sunny, the next minute gray. you can see the rain shaft cutting visibility off in the distance. we've had some blockbuster storms come in during the course of the evening. here you see this in our three-dimensional display. storms backed up. we lose because of rain intensity we got part of our data delivered by satellite so we lose the vertical
structure. we have the rest of the data. you can see where the heaviest is right now. on the front end you get the thunderstorms that produce the gusty winds and i was going to show you this little bow echo right here. we'll zoom in. i think we can get a little bit closer. you'll see a little arc. this is the radar signature of a thickly strong wind producing band of wind. this thing has dropped from du page county into cook county. if you're in the area i suspect your winds are as strong as anywhere. obviously lightning has been prolific and the worst of it is right over us right now the lightning lets up as we go to the west and yet the rains continue. it looks like based on the width of this we'll get about an hour to an hour and a half of rain. there you can see the heaviest concentration of lightning coming across wheeling and into downtown chicago and the rest of cook county. this is the area where the storms have been producing hail. we can track that by looking at the
amount of moisture in a column of air off the radar signature. so we can track where the most likely areas for hail have been. there is the wide view of this system. this is a little complex and there may be a second one that develops tomorrow afternoon, before we go into somewhat cooler drier air on saturday. only to heat up again over the weekend. thunderstorm warnings in the orange area. the watch in yellow, is in effect until 1:00 in the morning. here are some of the rain totals. glen view an early report of two inches of rain. winnetka, 1.63. north brook 1.83. some of these numbers skew high and that may be the nature of the rain gauge taking the reading but it gives you an idea where these heavy rains are coming down at winfield at the ag sciences school. not all of this has been just -- sol of these came down in storms earlier. look at the wisconsin totals from new richmond
cumberland prairie du chien 52 wind gusts. this is the weather camera on the tower up in madison, wisconsin. showing that squaw line moving in high resolution. that was quite a scene up there. until tonight, it had been 48 days since our last half inch of rain. 76 days since our last inch and a half of rain which we apparently have gotten in some parts of the area. there is the storm complex blowing up. these are storms that went through earlier today. all of this occurring on the apex of incredibly hot air. the west and southern suburbs were near 100 today from rockford out to aurora. and south all the way. the next seven days may see 1.53 inches of rain. individual rain totals from half an inch to three. with a hot day
tomorrow here you see the wave crossing the area. the first batch of storms has come through. another one may develop, favoring the area from chicago south tomorrow and then here's this high pressure that kind of builds in on friday, with an easterly wind that drops the humidity the dew points will go from the 70's where they were today down to the mid-60's. that's still a little humid. but the humid air is running up the backside of this and it's going to get hot. there is also a risk of severe weather in this area tomorrow and there are the high temperatures today with st. louis at 106. and you know something, we could get way up into the 90's next week. all the way from sunday afternoon to monday, tuesday, and wednesday, the way it looks right now. we're not done with this. the benchmark here, 1988 we had to wait until the end of july to get 90-degree days. we just got a
report elgin has received 1.0 a5 inches of rain in 20 minutes. downpour generating thunderstorms, tapering off later tonight. low temperatures down to 272. i guess we have quite a morning show tomorrow with an outdoor concert and jeff producer was asking about that. i think you'll still sneak that in. should start with some sun but clouds and storms in the afternoon or evening. high of 93. 40% coverage on the afternoon storms and they may be active and gusty wind producers. tomorrow night, low 70's. a beautiful day. more moderate humidity. 86 with northeast winds lowering the temperatures just a tad at the beaches. and then it's back to the heat again on saturday afternoon. sunday, monday tuesday and wednesday we go into a way bo normal temperature regime again next week. so, but at least we've got a little rain. that makes a dent here in the drought but we'll be
hearing from folks who weren't so lucky. >> we've got some video from the northwest side of the city. >> wow! >> there it is. >> that's -- isn't that something? >> you know you think rain would be nothing unusual around here -- >> right now -- >> my word. those things actually fall from the sky. it's kind of nice to see. >> we know what they say when it rains it pours. >> it does. >> with some wind and lightning. did it in quite dramatic fashion. got the ball game in. and the cubs won. >> you're saying that concert tomorrow morning -- >> i think it will be okay. >> those guys need all the help they can get. >> morning show right? >> thank you. >> see you later, guys. >> so we go from rain to talking about mosquitoes right? >> trucks were out in force on the northwest side tonight. spraying after mosquito pools tested positive for the disease. here's more from the newsroom with more on the city's mosquito battle.
>> the dry weather, you would think, would be helping with the west nile situation but not so much. no human cases of west nile so far this year but mosquitoes have been testing positive for this potentially deadly disease. there is no secure for it. all you can do is try to prevent it. it's the pre-dusk ritual for city contractors vector disease control. prep the trucks pour the pesticide and roll out spraying affected areas in fight against the mosquito that carries the west nile virus. >> the overall mosquito levels are lower but the ones that carry west nile virus are very much there and are -- many of them are infected. >> meant to be some audio. apparently we missed i missed it. spray tomorrow as
well as tonight where west nile virus has been found in trapped mosquitoes. the spray they are using not harmful to people or pets. they say but it is recommended that residents in the areas being sprayed stay inside with doors and windows closed. the reason the drought, the dry weather, isn't helping with the west nile situation, you're seeing fewer mosquitoes, but more of those that carry the west nile virus. >> thanks for going with the flow. we'll go from minnesota, winner of the midwest youth winner receiving a $10000 check at the world of whirlpool headquarters on north lasalle. he'll go on to compete for the international youth of the year award. wgn's reporter was the emcee. she said the boys and girls clubs are invaluable when it comes to keeping youngsters safe off the streets and furthering their
